The French Open tennis championship ended in Paris. In the men’s final, Rafael Nadal (2 ATP) gave no chance to world number one Novak Djokovic, defeating him in three sets and winning the 13th trophy at this tournament. In addition, the 34-year-old Spaniard took a 20th Grand slam title, equaling the record-holder Roger Federer.
Note that Rafael and Novak met for the 56th time-no one in men’s tennis has met more often (29-26 in favor of Djokovic and 17-7 in favor of Nadal on clay).
At the same time, Nadal was the current champion of the competition. In last year’s final, he defeated Austrian Dominik Tim— 6:3, 5:7, 6:1, 6:1, and now he has confirmed his title — for the 13th time. It is also his 100th win at Roland Garros.
Nadal won in three sets— 6:0, 6:2, 7:5. The match lasted 2 hours and 41 minutes. The Spaniard made four aces with one double fault and won seven break points out of 18. Djokovic has one ace, four double faults, and one winning breakpoint out of five.
Nadal won Roland Garros for a record 13th time, and also caught up with Swiss Roger Federer in the number of Grand slam titles.
